Reuben Tour of Columbus – Belmont Deli (Downtown)

My second downtown deli visit took me to the Belmont Deli, located in (you guessed it) the Belmont Building. A small space with a big menu, I actually tried the Club Sandwich on my first visit, and that was good enough to get me to make a second trip.

Here’s the scorecard:

Corned Beef – decent amount
Sauerkraut – proportionate to the amount of corned beef
Swiss Cheese – melted, but not especially flavorful
Thousand Island – present
Rye Bread – rye flavor was good but bread was more of a wheat consistency

Belmont Deli receives a 3 out of 5. Not bad, but not great. The bread tasted more like wheat bread with rye seeds than actual rye bread.
